Frequently Asked Questions

 

I’ve already tried to buy your list, but the only option is PayPal, so I cannot do that.

PayPal is a third party. You do not have to pay via PayPal as well, use your credit/debit card by choosing the type of payment as it showed on the picture below:

I am looking for a list of daily registered domains along with contact details of owners.

Sorry, we do not provide daily updates for Whois data. At the same time, we have Daily added/dropped domains list from selected zones.

 

May I have some sample domains?

Sure, you can download Free lists here:

I want to buy data for .com, .net & .org domains. I would like to know if it is possible to sort data in your list by country of the Registrant. Please let me know if it is possible to get this data & how much the pricing will be.

You can buy our Whois Dataset and sort the data by yourself, or we could filter and sort data for you depending on your customized request.

 

I just placed an order but have not received anything yet.

If you have any questions or troubles with purchasing, please check your spam folder or let us know immediately, and we contact you back shortly.

 

What is the procedure of getting files I want to purchase?

After a purchase completion, we send you a Purchase Receipt via email with the link(s) to download your files. For a one-time purchased list, a link is valid for 24 hours, while subscriptions for updates include a static HTTP download links with login credentials, where you can download the lists of Daily/Monthly updates from zone file domains, depending on Updating Plan you chose. The lists themselves are flat text files, one for each zone, containing only domain names (one per line).

 

The recent email said that the domains were updated on the 1st day of a month, where can I find those?

Please check all updates at our landing page.

 

Is there another place to get the updates, instead of the entire set of domain names?

We are working on API now, where you will be able to get any updates for any period for any zone, but we are going to release it in a month or so.

 

Do you include emails into the domain lists?

We include emails in Whois datasets only.

 

How often you update the whois database? I have to buy the entire database each month.

If you need just the names, we provide monthly updates. If you need Whois, sorry, we just have started to build this service and provide what we have for now. We planned workflow for Whois updates every four months. You can see on our website any changes we do.

 

If I subscribe to your monthly updates (let’s say I do both lists for $69), how long is that for? Is that an annual fee?

It’s the price of monthly updating for $69/per month.
Unfortunately, for now, we do not offer any annual subscription.

 

Please advise whether the purchase is including updates?

No. You should buy it separately.

 

Do you have the contact details of domains registered?

In Whois data sets only.

 

Can you please explain me, how you have collected the different lists? I have already bought some list and will buy some more from you. I use them to make an analysis. My client wants to know how the lists are made.

As you may already know, there is no easy way to get all registered domain names. Most of the registrars (especially ccTLD) don’t provide access to their zone files. When we faced a problem of obtaining lists of all available domain names from The Entire Internet, we started researching and had finished with creating our set of Big Data Tools to collect all possible existing domains. We collect the data day by day, while all updates we make on a 1-st day each month. For more information, check How We Collect Domain Names For Our Datasets in our blog.

 

How accurate are your ccTLD lists?

As we said before, next to nothing of ccTLD zone registries offer access to full zone file with an entire list of registered domains. We use some mix of reverse engineering algorithms, Internet crawling, and third-party sources such as Commoncrawl.org to fetch all possible ccTLD domains. Nevertheless, there is no way to get 100% of registered domains. Regarding the lists actuality, we check all domains for NS records, and if there are no NS servers on file, we mark those domains as a dead and then delete them from our database. We do our best to ensure that ccTLD domains represented in our DB are fresh and accurate, but for sure it’s impossible to make it 100% accurate.

I definitely like to work with big data projects and SEO analytics.
